Grid  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 7.1.0.1
by: Phanx, Trelis

Grid is a compact and highly configurable party/raid unit frame addon.

The compact grid of unit frames lets you select a group member quickly, while keeping a good overview of the whole group. It shows as much information as possible without overloading you. It allows you to customize what information you see, and how you see it. It works in both party and raid groups, and supports pets and vehicles.

Want more features? The Grid core tries to include only features which are generally useful for all classes and roles, but makes it easy to add new features with a simple plugin API for developers. Over 75 third-party plugins are already available!

Type “/grid” for options, or right-click the minimap button, DataBroker launcher, or Grid frame tab.

Language Support
Grid is compatible with all World of Warcraft localizations. It is currently translated into English, Deutsch, Español, Français, Italiano, Português, Русский, 한국어, 简体中文, and 繁體中文.

To add or update translations for any language, enter them on the WowAce project page. New and updated translations will be automatically included in the next version of Grid!

HINT: The WowAce interface for adding translations is quite cumbersome. To make the process easier, you can use the Export function on WowAce, copy the exported data into your text editor, fill in your translations, and then paste them back into WowAce using the Import function.
Credits
Grid was originally conceived and written by Maia and Pastamancer in late 2006. Phanx has been the primary developer since late 2009. Jerry wrote the original pet support code. Mikk designed the icon. jlam added some advanced options for auras. Greltok has helped a lot with bugfixing. Finally, lots of people have contributed translations!

So... something just occurred to me while poking around in the Frame > Advanced menu in-game and trying to think of what the problem could be... you mentioned putting the cursor into a field and typing a value. Are all of the settings you're having trouble with "range" settings (eg. there is a slider bar and a text field) ? After you type a value, are you pressing Enter (stupid question, I know)? Finally, how are you accessing the options -- are you accessing them through the window-style GUI, or the dropdown menus?

Thank you for that explanation as well as your continued help. Though the explanation boggles my mind as to how this can be that much more. Why would some and only some options just refuse to be written to memory?

This is the chat log from just logging in with just Grid enabled:

http://img295.imageshack.us/img295/9472/tempu.jpg

As the timestamps might suggest, the redundancies you see are NOT copy/paste errors on my part. Also, I was floating above Krasus' Landing in Dalaran in flight form, so I couldn't possibly have been considered to have been "in combat."

The last time I had Grid debugging on, just logging in did not produce near as much text. Is this because I'm currently using the "old" Grid with the new Libs whereas last time, it was uniform?

When I went to frame, advanced, enable center text 2 (this is a setting that has consistently worked), the chat log then said

(DEBUG) GridFrame [03:06:50.733] UpdateOptionsMenu()
(DEBUG) GridFrame [03:06:50.733] indicator barcolor is diabled

When I went to change corner size (consistently not worked), no new text was generated.

As a goof, I went to change corner size. Then immediately toggled enable center text 2. Corner size was instantly reverted to default (6). This is interesting (to me) because usually I can change the setting, move my mouse cursor to another field and proceed. I usually have to close the options screen and open it back up to see that it is still default.

I hope all this helps because I don't have access to another PC. I will say that I've used Grid with Windows 2000 and XP without issue. I believe you when you say that you're certain it's not a Windows 7 issue. It's just that it's always worked fine for me, until I installed Windows 7 AND 3.35 went live. That's two variables, but both are weeded out as potential culprits, eh?

When you log in, each addon is loaded into memory, and the contents of its saved variables files (if any) are also loaded into memory. When you log out, the copy of the addon in memory is discarded, and any variables that were listed as "saved variables" are written out to the saved variables file(s) for that addon. In between those events, WoW has zero concept of files. Everything is stored in memory; that's why if you terminate the WoW process, you lose any changes you made to any settings. It's also why you have to reload the UI before WoW notices any file changes, and why you must be logged out of WoW before making any manual changes to saved variables files. In fact, all game data operates this way; hence, you must log out before deleting the Cache.

When you go to Frame > Advanced > Corner Size, no file is read or written to. It's all in memory, until you log out. Furthermore, Grid stores all of its settings in a single table, which is written to a single file.

So, I'm pretty confident that whatever is causing your problem, it is not a Windows 7 file permissions issue. If that were the case, you would see all settings for a particular addon failing to preserve any changes between login sessions, but everything would run normally in-game.

Having said that, do you have access to any other computers? If so, try copying your entire WoW folder to another computer, including WTF and Interface, and seeing if the same thing occurs.

At this point the only other thing I can think of is to ask you to screenshot the debug messages from Grid and GridFrame that appear when you log in with only Grid enabled, change a setting that works, and then change a setting that does not work. I don't really expect to see anything that would shed more light on the problem, but I'm not sure what else to do, either.

Deleted cache folder, grid folder, and grid.lua and grid.lua.bak from wtf. Copied over my old grid (.1265 I think). Deleted its Libs folder and put in the Libs folder from the current version. Problem persists.

It doesn't make sense to me that some settings take and others do not. I still think it has something to do with Windows 7 not letting the game write to certain files or to files in a certain way. As a good, I told it to run WOW as administrator (even though only user on this machine has admin rights). For the first time, it prompted me "Do you wish to allow this program to make changes to your computer?" I had my hopes up. For naught. Problem persists.

When a player goes in frame, advanced and goes to change corner size, font size and frame dimensions, which file are these settings stored to? Is it written straight to memory first and saved to a file when WOW shuts down? Are things like enable center text 2, and frame upper left corner, etc written to a different file? There has to be a reason this is selective, but consistent. And why it's only happening to me apparently.

Well, the previous version of Grid is compatible with 3.3.5; just several of the Ace2 libraries it embeds are not. Try installing the previous version of Grid, but using the Libs folder from the latest version. Does the problem persist?

I had actually done that.

Tonight, I restored my old Grid.lua and Grid.lua.bak. I also restored my Grid folder from the last time I knew it to be configured to my liking. It was a version that you've just said isn't compatible with 3.35. Surprisingly, ALL my settings were default.

I started anew once more. Kill cache, WTF, and interface. Fresh, current Grid. All filed in my WOW folder are NOT read only. Problem persists. Is there nothing I can do? I love Grid and am not ready to try and learn to heal without it.

Update Grid. As per your error report, you are still using v1.30300.1290, which is not compatible with WoW 3.3.5, and was superceded by v1.30300.1304 on the 23rd (3 days ago). Generally speaking, before posting an error report for an addon, especially for issues that appear after WoW patches, you should double check that you actually have the latest version of the addon.

Thank you once again for your help.

Bad news. I installed both, launched WOW, made sure only Grid, BugSack, and !BugGrabber were the only addons enabled and logged into my druid. Sack was green. Bring up Grid, Frame, Advanced, and changed corner size. Closed Grid and opened it back up. Corner size is still default. Bug sack is still green. Try again, including chaning text size and frame height. Problem persists, no bugs detected.

Am I screwed? Is there anything about which settings are working and which aren't that would help you know where the problem is?

BugSack is an error-catching tool to capture error messages. It is better than the default UI's error handler because it (a) catches errors that occur early in the loading process, and (b) stores errors for later viewing so you don't have to deal with them immediately or lose them. You can find it, along with its required dependency !BugGrabber, on Curse:

http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-a...s/bugsack.aspx
http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-a...g-grabber.aspx

Install those, restart WoW, and let me know if anything appears in the sack. If you use a DataBroker display addon, you'll have a green or red bag icon on there; otherwise, you'll see it on your minimap. If the icon is green, no errors have been seen this session; if it's red, click on it to view the errors. Copy and paste any errors in the "Current session" tab (use the arrows to navigate through them) that mention Grid.

Yes, the settings in question are ignored as you describe it. (a) yes (b) I don't know what BugSack is, but I turned Debugging on for Grid, Gridframe, and Gridlayout. When I log in, it posts a few things (looks like initialization). When I try to change the ignorant settings, I see no messages. (c) Yes. Any option that is ignored is always ignored while any option the works always works. (d) At one point, I realized I was tinkering with the default profile. So I went to create new profile class druid, reset profile, copy from Default. Problem persists.

When I go into Frame Advanced and enable Center Text 2 (always my first step in configuring Grid), it's fine. I then go through the various submenus of Frame and everything is fine until I get to advanced. Things dealing with appearance such as corner size, font size, frame height, etc are ignored. This was what lead me to believe it might be patch related and I updated Grid to new version in case (wanted it anyways for pet support). Problem persists identically with the new Grid as well.

If it matters, when I deleted my old Grid and replaced it with the new version, I went into WTF and deleted all instances of Grid. I believe it was just Grid.lua and Grid.lua.bak. Thank you for your speedy reply, as well as your work. As you can see, I can't heal without Grid! :-P

From the addon description:

If you downloaded Grid from wowace.com, or through the Curse Client, please don't post here. The WoWInterface releases are actually tested. Anything from wowace.com is bleeding-edge and may or may not work.
This page is for stable releases; if a version was not released here, please do not post about it here.

If you change an option and the new setting is applied in-game, but reverts to its previous setting after you relog or reload the UI, then yes, it is probably an issue with file permissions. I don't use Windows 7, so I can't help you, but there are dozens of resources out there explaining how to fix various problems with WoW and Windows Vista/7.
